Tilt switch module

Article code: ARD155

Tilt switch module

Tilt switch module. Suitable for Arduino or other microcontrollers. 

Example code:



 Turns on and off a light emitting diode(LED) connected to digital  

 pin 13, when pressing a pushbutton attached to pin 2. 

 The circuit:

 * LED attached from pin 13 to ground 

 * pushbutton attached to pin 2 from +5V

 * 10K resistor attached to pin 2 from ground

 * Note: on most Arduinos there is already an LED on the board

 attached to pin 13.

 This example code is in the public domain.



// constants won't change. They're used here to 

// set pin numbers:

const int buttonPin = 2;     // the number of the pushbutton pin

const int ledPin =  13;      // the number of the LED pin


// variables will change:

int buttonState = 0;         // variable for reading the pushbutton status


void setup() {

  // initialize the LED pin as an output:

  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      

  // initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:

  pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);     



void loop(){

  // read the state of the pushbutton value:

  buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);


  // check if the pushbutton is pressed.

  // if it is, the buttonState is HIGH:

  if (buttonState == HIGH) {     

    // turn LED on:    

    digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);  


  else {

    // turn LED off:

    digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);
